Today I’m using this gorgeous Marc Jacobs Style Eye Con no. 20 palette! Have you guys follow me on Instagram yet? You should! If you follow me on Instagram, you’d be able to get the first look at swatches and product review! Anyways, watch the tutorial below to get the look, and read more for the swatches and pictorial.
So, just a quick note on the Marc Jacobs Style Eye Con no. 20 palette. This is my first Marc Jacobs palette, and I’m in love with it. The palette comes in 20 eyeshadows, they are all pretty neutrals except for the gold one there on the 2nd row. They have a mix of matte, metallic and sparkle shades in them. The eyeshadows are actually split into columns (vertical), but I, for some reason,thought it was divided horizontally. I always think eyeshadows in palettes are grouped from left to right instead of top to bottom.
Anyways, you’ll be able to find all the shade info on Sephora’s website – Marc Jacobs Style Eye Con no. 20 Eyeshadow palette
If you can’t see the page, here’s the description from the Sephora website

As I’ve mentioned, I swatched the eyeshadows horizontally, from Left to Right. So, let’s break it down a bit
Top row (L-R): mostly base and highlight colours, except for Matte Suede. The colours on this row are pretty light, all matte, except for Cream Shimmer. Matte Ivory, Matte Eggshell, and Matte Rose-Petal blush don’t really show up on my skintone since they are in the same shade range as my skin tone, which makes is a pretty nice base colour.
- Matte Ivory – off white
- Matte Suede – warm reddish light brown
- Matte Eggshell – yellow based white
- Matte Rose-Petal Blush – light rosy shade
- Cream Shimmer – vanilla shimmer
2nd row (L-R): all shimmers, very pigmented and buttery. My favourite in this row is Metallic Gold. It’s a really lovely shade and catch the most attention.
- Metallic Gold – yellow gold with a hint of green
- Champagne Shimmer – warm bronze
- Snowy White Shimmer – white shimmer
- Mink Shimmer – taupe brown shimmer
- Peachy Rose Shimmer – reddish toned brown shimmer
3rd row (L-R): This row is pretty much shimmers, except for Matte Cashmere which is matte. I’m pretty suprised that Matte Cashmere shows up pretty dark on my arm, even though it looks pretty light on the palette. The shadows on this row are great for eyelid colours, and will make a nice colour for smoky eyes.
- Metallic Bronze – bronze
- Chestnut Shimmer – warm brown
- Charcoal Shimmer – grey shimmer
- Matte Cashmere – cool taupe
- Lavender Shimmer – plum shimmer
Bottom row (L-R): the darkest row, and they are contour and/or liner colours.
- Matte Aubergine – dark plum
- Matte Cocoa – dark brown (somehow it shows up quite grey, but it’s actually a pretty warm cocoa shade)
- Matte Sooty-Black – matte black
- Deep Black – black with silver sparkles
- Matte Spice – very warm red-brown
For the look today, I wanted a very warm brown smoky eyes, and then I added the Metallic Gold eyeshadow in the center as a highlight. If you’re having trouble creating a Halo Smoky eyes, this would be the easiest way to do it. It gives a very pretty pop of colour in the center of the lid, and I think it looks absolutely stunning. I didn’t do any winged liners today, but you can if you want.
I disliked the eyelashes I used on this tutorial, so I do apologize if my lashes don’t look that great. I recently bought the Ardell Baby Wispies lashes, but I don’t really like it with this look. I should have used my Silk lashes instead, but oh well!
